About NHC Place
National Health Care (NHC) was founded in 1971 by Dr. Carl Adams, a physician and surgeon in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Dr. Adams goal was to provide the highest level of care possible to every patient who needed our services. For over 35 years NHC has been meeting that goal by delivering quality long term care through a variety of services. Dr. Adams also dreamed one day of a continuum of care that would provide even a greater spectrum of services. In 1996 part of that dream became reality as NHC Place Assisted Living community opened its doors. For over sixteen years NHC Place has continued the tradition of providing quality care by offering an innovative lifestyle alternative for seniors. Today, that same tradition continues, as we provide the perfect combination of independence and personal assistance, delivered in a secure home-like setting.
"No one knows the quantity of their life,
I don't know how many days you have on earth,
nor does anyone else, Except God.
What I am most interested in is the quality of life while they are here, that's the business I'm in."
Dr. Carl Adams
